I work at the NASA Jet Propulsion Lab, which is responsible for unmanned
exploration of the solar system for NASA. I am involved in a project to
develop an advanced architecture for controlling autonomous spacecraft.
This project is part of a project called New Millenium whose purpose is to
develop inexpensive spacecraft for the year 2000 and beyond (hence the name).
I am using CLisp to prototype a spacecraft executive based on a control
methodology called conditional sequencing. I won't bore you with the
details; if anyone is interested, contact me.
Web page! Web page!
The current project is only a prototype, but I am also interested in using
Lisp for actual flight code. I am a bit of a lone warrior in this, as Lisp
is widely perceived by people in NASA to be too big and slow for "real" work.
Take a look at Paul Graham's _On_Lisp_. It's a fabulous book, and it
has an example where Lisp does some numerical computation faster than
